Really Chuffed (Happy)

Got the seeds right away, and the instructions to insure good germination I think was key. The comphrey seeds germinated and the plants are growing nicely. Looking forward to using them in the future and learning more about their growing habits.

The plants did not do a great job of germinating. I only got a little bit out of a whole Package

excellent comfrey seeds

This was my first year dealing with comfrey and sprouting perennial seeds, and pretty much every seed sprouted. I also found the germination directions easy to follow.
